The Living Legacy

saturday-night-jamboree.jpgThis Saturday (Jan. 1) we'll hear voices from Ramea to Lance au Clare, as well as Mi'k Maq music, and radio programs dating back half a century.

It's all available on compact disc, thanks to Memorial University's Research Centre for Music, Media and Place, also known as MMaP.

Newfoundland and Labrador music and heritage is an ongoing conversation at MMaP. To stimulate that conversation, the Centre produces an ongoing series of CDs drawing from our rich archive of traditional music.

Beverly Diamond is the producer of that archival series and she joins me to talk about the music and explore the collection.

Featured CDs include:

  • It's Time for Another One: Folk Songs from the South Coast of Newfoundland 
  • Newfoundland and Labrador Folklore: A Sampler of Songs, Narrations, and Tunes
  • Saturday Night Jamboree on CBC Newfoundland (pictured)
